Maricar Tolentino

Subverting the concept of sewing as a delicate and womanly craft, Maricar Tolentino wields needle and thread like weapons against the oppressors in society. Starting from wordplay in her titles, she then harnesses images of the home, the body, and the kitchy to explore concepts of vulnerability and irony. For her, art is a reaction to society’s everyday struggles and she endeavors to continuously speak out and confront the viewers through her fiber art practice.
